If you missed the opening of Aleah Chapin’s exhibit at Flowers Galleries, then you need to get down to Chelsea ASAP. These huge oil paintings – figurative nudes – are unbelievably life-like. These are truly intimate works, lovingly rendered portraits of Aleah’s friends from her hometown of Seattle. Check out this video interview and then […]

Artist Statement: “Self-Portraits” is an exploration of human sexuality, its depersonalization and even brutalization by our culture; the unlikely fusion of sacred and erotic feelings; the tension of experiencing our bodies and souls as two separate parts of ourselves, one higher and nobler than the other; or, the exhilaration of experiencing the body and soul […]

Artist Statement: To me art is a very personal thing. It’s all about visual communication between the artist and the viewer. If a piece of art moves you and speaks to you it is a great painting no matter the medium or style. If it makes you want to take it into your life and […]
Artist Statement: Out of a dynamic and fluid background, I create a figure captured in a single moment of time. My most expressive works are those of my love. Our love is always evolving, each painting is an expression of our love at a particular moment. Biography: Born in 1960 in Montreal, L’OR discovered the pleasure of […]

Artist Statement: As an Artist, I am constantly searching for ways to express my deeper observations on humanity. It’s that simple. Sometimes, I pack my largest thoughts into a complicated image. Sometimes, I focus on how beautiful we are as a species in a simple drawing of a nude figure. I have developed several “bodies” […]

It is the formal character of painting that I am interested in, the composition, form and quality of color. Working from life with a wide array of media, […]

I use narrative structures like allegory and myth to explore meaning in our common experience. I create images to evoke our spiritual human presence and emotional connection through art. The nude is my primary subject, and is to me […]
Artist Statement: In my works I am often dealing with myth as subject matter. I have since an early age been influenced by the writings of Joseph Campbell. For me, myth does not stop with our cultural archives, but can evolve new meanings with sufficient imagination. Specifically compelling to me are the temple carvings of […]
